house Bill H.R. 3134

Cutting Off Federal Funding for Planned Parenthood for One Year

Argument in favor

Whether you agree or disagree with Planned Parenthood and its abortion services, a one-year moratorium on federal funding while allegations against the organization are investigated makes sense.

Cut off funding PERMANENTLY! I'm totally against my taxes going to help pay for the slaughter and dismemberment of unborn children! Don't call them fetuses! Look at ultrasounds, and what you see are BABIES! Prosecute Planned Parenthood for genocide and the illegal trafficking in human body parts! There are plenty of other ways women can get the health care services provided by PP butchers! Like Carly Fiorina said, this is about the CHARACTER OF OUR NATION! And God IS watching!

This is the first step, but they need to be defunded until they stop offering abortion services.

Argument opposed

This bill is an overreaction to a smear campaign against Planned Parenthood. They offer valuable services to many low income families and individuals outside of abortions — and it hasn't done anything illegal.

Planned parenthood has done nothing to warrant the loss of Federal funds. Just another walk back of women's healthcare. Specially poor women

What is the back up plan for if this passes? Women won't magically all get better and not need their services. Where would the funding go? If you cut a service without something else to take it's place we are putting a burden onto the people that need it's help.

Federal money is not allowed to be used for abortions now. However, the group provides important and needed medical services for millions of women. Removing funding would endanger their health.

    This bill is a serious overreaction to a non problem. Planned Parenthood is a major provider of family health services and should be praised for their good work, not excoriated by selective half truths

    Only 3% of Planned Parenthood's services are directly related to abortion. Thanks to the Hyde Amendment, not a single penny of taxpayer money has gone to fund abortions services since 1974. To defund Planned Parenthood means to defund the other 97% of their services, including, but by no means limited to, pap smears, cancer screenings, mammograms, diabetes screenings, STD treatment, even services for men like infertility screenings, testicular cancer treatment, and erectile dysfunction tests.

    Cutting funding for Planned Parenthood is ridiculous - PP provides necessary health services for women. Not only does it educate people in reproductive issues, but also is a trusted resource for young or disadvantaged women with no one to turn to. The issue of abortions may be handled without dismantling the entire organization. Passing this bill would be a huge step backwards for American women.

    Why do people think that planned parenthood does nothing but kill babies? They do HIV testing, cancer screenings, provide contraceptives, and have rape counseling at a reduced price or even free. Lots of women use this and by cutting them off, you're losing them as well. This is a stupid bill.

    We have shown that we are still in the Stone Age when it comes to women's rights. This is an unjust action for the poor women and those women who were raped. No one has the right to affect ones choice of what to do with their body.

    Planned Parenthood provides cancer screenings. Planned Parenthood provides services to people that don't want abortions but that plan to be parents. They offer OBGYN exams to those who can't afford healthcare otherwise. And yes they offer abortions (not federally funded) to women like me, with medical conditions that make pregnancy a life threatening condition. My husband and I try not to get pregnant. We use multiple forms of birth control, but nothing is 100%. If I were to get pregnant I would need an abortion because of my medical condition. My private doctor does not preform them. I would need to go to Planned Parenthood. Without them both my baby and I would die. Why is the life of a fetus that couldn't survive outside the womb more important than my life? Why do we only want to save the babies and not the women? I'm sorry my body cannot produce children. But I still want to live to maybe adopt a child. I just want to live. Please don't take away services that could save my life.

    Hell No! Abortions are not funded by federal monies. The health care services that are funded are desperately needed. Although people think there is some huge group who will swoop in and fill the void they dont exist and CERTAINLY not in rural areas. If you dont have some type of plan ready to go on day one when you shitter these clinics then you simply grandstanding

    Why should my tax money be put towards killing innocent babies. You people make no sense. You don't want to kill CONVICTED CRIMINALS but you are all for killing innocent babies with no voice. Make up your mind. Federal funding should not be used so woman can use abortions as birth control that's just insane. If you don't want babies then don't have sex or properly use birth control it's as simple as that. I don't know why that is so hard. You can get an iud for free from your insurance and it's the most effective form of birth control and can last up to twelve years. The only case abortion is acceptable is if you were raped, from incest, or it will endanger the mothers health. That's it not just because you were too careless to make sure your partner used a condom. Sex isn't a necessity people if you don't want a baby then DONT HAVE SEX.

    Planned Parenthood provides so many services to women besides abortions! The best to prevent abortions is to make sure the women have access to proper healthcare and are educated about their bodies and sex.
